Autodesk is one of the many devs out there that consistently impress me with its high-quality, well-made apps - especially when it comes to Honeycomb. The newest app out of Autodesk's camp, SketchBook Pro, meets - and perhaps surpasses - all of the standards that have been set in my mind for quality development.

SketchBook Pro is a drawing app designed with the professional in mind - and it appears to be quite full-featured. It's designed to be used with a stylus or with your finger, depending on what type of look you're going for.

After watching the video, one of the coolest things about Sketchbook Pro in my opinion is the "mirror" feature, which makes creating images that require precision symmetry extremely easy.

SketchBook Pro will set you back $4.99, and you can grab it by hitting the widget below.

    Anybody know what the stylus shown in the video is? It looks to have some kind of retraction method.

    I love this app. If it would vector render, and manage paths it would be an excellent Adobe Illustrator replacement on a mobile device. Still, it is very full featured, and fun. The layer management was a selling point for me.

    Looks good. Been waiting for the tablet version and definitely look forward to throwing down 5 bucks for this app. Android needs more high-end apps like this.

    first time i've actually wished i had a tablet in my life. this looks awesome enough to be kind of a replacement for a cintiq drawing tablet.

    well... not really... at all... (no tilt / pressure level detection alone "ruins" it), but it looks cool anyways :P

      There IS pressure sensitivity available on this version of SBP, given that you have a pen able to make use of it. Honeycomb tablets that make use of N-trig pens can use the pressure sensitivity. The hard part is figuring out which tablets use or can use these pens.

    Well I just bought one of those Stylus (styli?) and I'll grab Sketchbook for my tablet when the stylus arrives.

    Have used the free version on my phone. Tablet version looks hot.

    as someone with very little if any artistic ability I still love this app. the most useful feature is the symmetry option. sketchbook pro is great for jotting down quick sketches and just going wild with your imagination and limited artistic ability.
